    Western NY commute - How was your ride today?

    Any commuters in WNY? How was your commute today?

    65F, sunny, with a mild breeze. Perfect for the quick 4 mile jaunt to University Station! I really wish they would hurry up on Kenmore Ave's construction. I've been detouring down the side road because of it

    I prefer the side roads around here. I would love to commute in 65 F temps. It's been a long time.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    I spent 6 years in Fort Hood. I commuted there to work daily for quite some time. High temps in TX aren't bad: It's a dry heat

    I was commuting regularly at one time.... 7 miles each way, rode most of the time. My office moved and now it's 17 miles and I haven't ridden to work since June due to the heat. I am getting more miles in, though, by riding at night.
